Paper Smooches SPARKS-Waving Hello

*** Scroll down to the post below or click HERE to see my card for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! ***
This week's Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge is a Designer Draft challenge.  I used the sketch to put together this nautical themed design that's perfect for summertime.

I turned the sketch's long rectangular panel into a watery scene.  For the background, I die cut a strip of dark blue paper with one of the Borders 2 dies to look like waves, then adhered it to a chevron patterned paper panel.  The scene is topped with the sailboat image from the Wicked Nauticool stamp set.  I colored the image with Copic markers, then used the matching Nauticool die to cut it out.  A white cloud, die cut with the cloud from the Spectrum Icons set rounded out the scene.

I adhered the scene to a kraft card base with a strip of red cardstock along the bottom.  The "waving hello" sentiment was stamped beneath the tilted panel in black ink.
